Vigil

We went to Vigil Mass last night
To avoid the storm.
I sat with you in the back.
(It’s easier that way.)
You sat on the kneeler
put your Teddy beside
and looked up
Such Perfection.
Peerless and innocent, ready
To be loved without question,
And I was caught off guard
By the sheer beauty of it.
You sitting on the kneeler,
Smiling up at me, your Teddy right beside.

A photo taken by Blessed Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916) of the Eucharistic Jesus while it was exposed on the altar. What came out was this picture of the child Jesus.
